Emachines model MS2257 HDD password

I have a laptop Make emachines model MS2257. It is protected with a HDD password. The Bios is also protected with a password. I dont know both. I am unable to find any solution to reset or bypass the HDD or Bios password. I even have taken out the Bios battery for over than 24hrs. But no use. I want to know that If I get a new sata HDD and replace it into the laptop. will it work? I have read some of the sites that this new HDD will also be protected by password when installed into the laptop and become useless. Is it the case or by replacing the HDD I can get the laptop working.

Can you get into it at all. If you can't, try to reset to the factory presets. You can do this with:

  • A restore CD
  • A XP/Vista disk and choose to re-format and re-install it again (probably your best bet)
  • *If you can get in as a guest* Re-install from hidden Restore drive. (Usually by pressing ALT - F10) You

ID FROZEN ON MY ACER ASPIRE V5-471. I NEVER PUT A HDD PASSWORD IN IT WHEN I BOUGHT THE LAPTOP 4 YEARS AGO.HOW CAN I FIX THAT.


Does it makes any kind of sound when you boot? Is the HDD frozen or is it password protected? If it makes a clicking sound when you boot the computer then the HDD pointer inside the HDD is stuck.
If you can get to the BIOS, you can delete any password from the BIOS. If the HDD does not shows up in the BIOS, then your HDD is probably fry.

D525 hdd password forgotten---frozen


The hdd password is stored in the firmware of the hdd, not in the bios. There is only two options available.
1/ type the password.
2/ purchase a new hdd as it is totally unformattable in that condition.

Unlock HDD


it's is locked because it is password protected. if it's not for you, ask the owner for the password.

Even if you enter the BIOS and attempts to remove the HDD password, You will still need to produce the password before you can disable it.

EMACHINES T3522 Message "ENTER PASSWORD TO UNLOCK SYSTEM" ON STARTUP


http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T3522 Chat with a tech. I think a system password has been set by someone. Most probably a bios / HDD password. So you need to know that to boot. Bios reset may do the trick (by removing cmos battery). But you have to set the settings back to normal in BIOS. But if you have encrypted data you may harm them. (Rarely).

Hdd password reset


Hi,
Laptops have the option to password protect for security purposes. If the laptop should be lost-stolen. this is to ensure your personnal data, cannot be accessed by any tom dick and harry.
Post your laptop model number, and i,ll see if anything can be done.
i do not endorse password removal, as the majority of the time, a user cannot prove that the laptop actually belongs to them.
I,d also feel happier if you could also prove in any way, that you are the legal owner of the laptop in question.
